02/12/2004 Archived Entry: "Boring stuff...from a boring mind"

Lookie at the trouble I started! Ok, so if you don't play Planetside, that will be *absolutely* meaningless to you and will look like 4 pages of pointless arguing, which it is, but that's not the point. The point is that MY post has reached 4 pages in length (so far)! Yay me!

In other news, my alarm system went in OK...took about two and a half hours to install (but they did straighten out my phone lines which apparently were messed up when the painters were there) and it's a neat looking system to boot. Actual monitoring starts tonight, so now none of you theiving gypsies can take my stuff...bastards...

Speaking of theiving gypsies, got to do that fun "Express Mail" thing today. Fortunately I waaaaaaaay overestimated the weight of this stuff and it was about $10 cheaper than I thought it'd be. Should be where it's going tomorrow. I picked up a 40k book, some Bretonnian Men-at-Arms and a new paint thingy of Bleached Bone for me...so I'd call that a rather productive lunch hour. Don't forget that I also grabbed lunch in this time! Didn't eat it until I was back at work...but I got it!

I'm like...the productivity king.

The notable exception to this productivity of course being that which I'm paid to do. I've sent out a few emails...wrote up a few evaluations and...um...yeah, that's really about it. I'll probably keep working on these Linux machines a bit more, but since they always seem to break in the middle for no apparent reason, I'm quite tempted to just shoot them all and be done with it (the machines, not the people).

Mr. Ulanti is the fucking bomb...carrying around the amount of stuff that he has on him is just remarkable. People looked at me funny for getting this expensive thing to do that which a promotional date book from a company can do, but over the past 7 months, he has more than proven his worth (to the point that I actually personify a PDA!). In my pocket, I have the contact information for 160 businesses and people, I have my e-mail, my entire toy inventory (well, that which I have had the opportunity to inventory), my home inventory (which includes information about my loan...which he can do a payment breakdown for on demand, as well as DVD/Video collections), my finances for the past month (including current account balances), the jotted down notes of dozens of meetings, a small library of novels and maps from here to Philadelphia and westward. It's a lot of stuff for something the size of my hand to be carting around...and I'm not even using him fully, tons of other things I *could* make him do...like I plan to have my CDs cataloged soon...just need to work out the right database format. I am greatly saddened by the fact that he is no longer available through Dell's website. Reports are that Ulanti's brethren will make their smashing return in March '04...so start saving folks! You *need* one...

Ok...I've dodged real work for long enough...back to the trenches.
